Obituary for Beverley Eloise Piprah

With great sadness we announce the passing of Beverley Piprah, also known as “Joy”, who died peacefully in her sleep surrounded by family at home in Coquitlam, on Wednesday August 28th, 2019.

Beverley was born in St. Catherine, Jamaica, the second oldest of a large, blended family. Here in Vancouver, B.C. Beverley was commonly referred to as “Auntie Bev” because of her popular, authentic Jamaican foods company but her true passion was her family. Beverley was a loving and dedicated daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother and mother-in-law. She is survived by her husband George, sons Bernard & Lenny, several brothers and sisters, and her grand-daughter Kalina. She was dearly loved and will be deeply missed by all her family and friends.

She was bold, fun and courageous! Beverley loved to sing, share stories about her upbringing in Jamaica and most importantly advocate for disadvantaged people in her community; Later in life Bev and George enjoyed travelling around the world.

There will be a church service on Friday September 13th at 10:30 am at CA Church (2601 Spuraway Ave, Coquitlam, B.C.), reception will follow downstairs. Immediately following the reception Beverley will be buried at 1:30pm at Robinson Memorial Park Cemetery (621 Robinson St, Coquitlam, B.C.)

From the Ghana High Commissioner to Canada at the Ghana High Commission in Ottawa, Canada:
We received with sadness the passing of Mrs Beverley Piprah the spouse of our Hon Consul George Piprah and the Mission took a decision to send a high level delegation made up of the Head of Chancery and myself as the High Commissioner to represent the Mission.

We share in the grief of Mr Piprah and his family knowing she is simply irreplaceable to the family .

We are aware Mr Piprah has been exemplary in his duties as Honorary Consul and we have no doubt that Mrs Piprah has been a pillar behind him.’

From the tributes we have heard this morning,we are able to say that the honour,respect and usefulness of the Piprah family have been materially due to the skill and assiduity with which she managed the affairs of the family.
She lived a full life which ought to be emulated.

I exhort the family ,to look up to God during this period for comfort and support and implore his Devine guidance in all their lawful undertakings

On behalf of the High Commission and on my own behalf we say May her soul and the souls of the faithful departed rest and abide in the bosom of the Lord.

As we say in Ga Yoowo ojobaang ye hedzole mli.meaning rest in perfect peace
